A Long Weekend...

Well... this weekend has been full of work! Which is definitely a good thing.
Here are some paintings I worked on over the weekend as well as a logo I am designing...

This is the logo... It is for a camp group that teaches art to children. :0

These are more work for Fadenrot...

I still thinking working for this client has been like a dream!
I have to print out a manuscript I received over the weekend as well to see if I can get it all worked out... I like the first stages of working on a book... letting it kind of stew in my brain, let first impressions really set in, try and highlight instances I felt really stood out in the story, moments I can use to get emotional responses, etc. This book is by a self publisher, but I am not opposed to working for these clients.
I will post the work as I go! This project is due at the end of the month so it should be a bit grueling as far as schedule goes, but it should also be fun!

So, let's keep in touch!

God Bless!

Marriage and Work

Well, I've been MIA, but with good reason!!

I recently got married, went on a weekend Honeymoon in Cambria, CA, and then have been busy painting on more projects!


Here is the image so far... it is still pending approval, but following will be the two snow queens I blogged about in earlier posts.

Josh and I were engaged for quite a long time... too long, to be honest, but we were trying desperately to save up for a wedding... and it seemed life wasn't going to allow us to ever keep enough of our money to do this! But we don't mind... we are happy! :) We had a family friend marry us in their backyard with just immediate family. Nothing fancy, nothing too formal. We are both religious, or at least we are now, and thus, the wedding was not really about anything except our commitment and so I wouldn't really have it any other way...

April has been nuts though, I must say!
As I write this, Josh is giggling to the Onion Radio News on his ITunes... pretty funny stuff. He's going back to Grad School soon enough as well so more change is on the horizon.
Well, onward and upward!
